Employment Related Day Care (ERDC)

Employment Related Day Care (ERDC) benefits may be approved for children participating in online schooling due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While formerly online schooling was not considered a childcare need (such as for home-schooling), ODHS recognizes the need for high quality care even while a child is completing their schooling virtually. Examples: helping child log in online, contact with a teacher, developing schedules to support a child’s distance learning and assisting with completion of schoolwork. Families and providers may contact the Direct Pay Unit at1-800-699-9074, Monday through Friday, 8:30am – 4:30pm.
